If the temperature reaches 20 degrees celsius in educational institutions, it is not necessary to continue heating, according to the deputy state secretary responsible for public education László Kisfaludy, writes hvg.hu.

According to Népszava, the ministerial decree on the minimum level of occupational safety requirements for workplaces prescribes 20-22 degrees celsius as the minimum level for mental work.

Erzsébet Nagy, a committee member of the Democratic Trade Union of Teachers (PDSZ), said that although the government decree really stipulates 20 degrees celsius as the winter minimum, this only means that if it were colder than that in the institution, and it would remain so for two days, then an extraordinary break must be ordered.

Based on this, Nagy believes that it is possible that some institutions will switch to online education during the winter period.
